I think every kid in Pennsylvania saw it. Supposedly school was out that day due to a massive snow storm and they ran that press conference live all over the state.

I only remember the CBS Evening news that night showing him pull the gun out.

Now if someone claims they saw Christine Chubbuck blow her brains out on live TV....I don't buy it.

That was the most disturbing **** I've ever witnessed. I'd never want to see something like that in my life again ...

I wouldn't go searching the source.

As someone else said, I do not search that stuff out, and if I see a link to it, I studiously avoid it. I don't know why people force themselves to watch that kind of stuff.

We haven't even gotten into the 2 Girls 1 Cup type stuff (which I also haven't watched and never will). I remember someone posting a gif on some forum of a guy who stuck a drinking glass up his ass, and it shattered and he had to pull it out again. Ugh. Or there was another one where a guy literally cut off the head of his dick with a razor blade. And I only saw either one of them because someone posted the gif in the middle of the thread. What is seen can never be unseen again.

In terms of the violent stuff this thread is referencing, I saw a video somewhere (probably at the Al Jazeera site) of indiscriminate shelling in a Damascus market. The video was taken probably just a minute or two after the attack, and there was one guy who had literally been cut in half. It was just his torso, and he was still alive and waving his arms around and didn't really seem to realize what had just happened. Just awful. (All made possible by Vladimir Putin's arms sales to Assad, by the way. Thanks Vlad, you're a real humanitarian.)

Many years ago I saw a couple of videos on TV from one of the wartorn Russian republics. They should a captured Russian soldier getting his finger shot off. I guess the idea being that they were holding him for ransom and they were going to keep mutilating him until someone paid up. The same set of videos showed an old Russian guy that Chechen (I think, or maybe Dagestani) militants were about to behead. They didn't show the beheading... just the guy talking into the camera explaining what they were about to do to him, and he was so terrified he was shaking while he was trying to talk.

No, thankfully.

I'm REALLY squeamish with injuries, and whenever they talk about an athlete's leg or elbow bending the wrong way, I just turn away from the screen. I am definitely not cut out for your profession.

I am. I also seem to remember some guy from the Cincinatti Bengals breaking some bone or other very badly during a Superbowl. Strangely though, I'm not really affected by watching those injuries because it's never happened to me. Watching athletes blow out their knees, however, really does affect me, because I've done it myself.

That being said, I fail to see how sports injuries are even remotely comparable to the torture and violent death videos available on the Internet.

I remember that like it was yesterday. I got my mom to believe I was sick so I got to stay home from school, and I was watching the launch live when it happened.

AHHH - forgot about Tim Krumrie's Super Bowl injury - thanks for that nightmare image again hehehe

I'd say it would be between the shuttle blowing up or the poor souls who felt they had to jump from the towers (but Theisman's injury is high on the list because they kept replaying it over and over and over again)

I remember a jumper video that went viral that had Tom Petty "Free Fallin'" played along to it.

Every time I hear that damn song that's what I think of. Kinda ruins it.

Seriously? That's in remarkably bad taste. I don't have particularly delicate sensibilities, but that is incredibly disrespectful.

3 guys 1 hammer was the only thing in my life that I have ever been unable to watch to its conclusion. I have friends that love showing me "crazy" things, but that was just too much. And I've seen some depraved things in my life.

Sports injuries happen live on TV without warning. You really have to go looking for torture stuff.

Wasn't there a guy who shot himself on live TV after a police chase about a year ago? I know some people flipped out about it.

I avoid those things like the plague.

Probably the most upsetting thing was watching live people jump from the WTC. Plus the news playing phone messages of people who called loved ones to say goodbye. That was pretty much what caused me to turn off the TV after 9/11 and not turn it back on for a couple of weeks. Just couldn't handle that type of heartbreak.
